The first ever spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak awareness week is taking place this week, between 26 February and 4 March 2017.
The event is being spearheaded by the Spinal CSF Leak Foundation, but has received global support and will appeal to those with an interest in CSF leaks around the world.
Amongst the events being held, of particular interest to our members will be three LIVE Q&A sessions on 1st, 2nd and 3rd March, featuring top experts in the world of CSF leaks: Dr Wouter Schievink, Dr Peter Kranz and Dr Ian Carroll.
The sessions will be hosted on the Spinal CSF Leak Foundation’s Facebook page and are not to be missed. No sign-up is necessary; just login to Facebook, navigate your way to their page and join in!
For our members in the UK, Ireland and some other European areas, the live sessions will be at 7PM / 19:00 GMT.

It would be great if our members could join us in raising awareness of spinal cerebrospinal fluid leaks during Leak Week 2017 by drawing droplets on your hand, arm or face.
Once you’ve got your work of art completed, take a quick picture of it and share it via social media, with the hash tag: #leakweek …and encourage your friends and family to do the same!
